"You will learn to preserve your Life Force, and so, manifest a consciousness which will allow you to commune with the living after death."
―The spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn, communing with Yoda[src]

Through special training, certain beings were able to appear as Force spirits through the Force.[6] The knowledge was open only to those who followed the light side,[1] so the only known individuals with the ability to manifest after death were Jedi.[3] It was made possible by energy from the Living Force flowing into the Cosmic Force.[7] The Force Priestesses, who dwelled on the planet said to be the origin of the midi-chlorians, taught the skill to Qui-Gon Jinn,[3] the first known Jedi to learn the secret. His training was incomplete upon his death, however, so he could only manifest as a disembodied voice.[7] The secret was later passed on to Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Anakin Skywalker.[4] The Sith were unable to manifest themselves after death, causing them to concentrate on gaining earthly power only.[1] One Sith, the Presence, was able to preserve part of her conscious essence so long as it was bound to an object like a Sith holocron.[8]
